Yes protein is still “KING” or the “SUPERHERO”
in my book and it appears to be so in most of the USA as well.
Protein consumption has skyrocketed especially in the youth of our country. Health conscious, weight conscious youth of America. This is a good thing right? Well by now you should know that I am not going to follow the crowd blindly like a sheep or cow to slaughter. I have been doing my research.
First of all I believe I have made it clear that I don’t really think protein powder is something that we need in our diets…period. There have been a number of deaths associated with the consumption of certain protein powders and liver damage. The other reason is how can anyone be really sure exactly what is in that powder?
Since I have been increasing my protein consumption, and loving the feeling of fullness it gives me I have had the side affect of going into a daily coma after I eat.
I am not talking a little sleepy here, it is full blown non responsive coma
Of course I am exaggerating but that is how I feel and I cannot control it. I have to lay down and sleep for 10-30 minutes if I am at work and longer if I am at home.
This of course prompted more research on the subject which I am including in my PROTEIN POWER PUNCH REPORT soon to be released.
Bottom line take away is if you are going to start increasing your protein and decreasing your carbs it is a process best done by starting to add more green leafy to your diet. One to two cups every day and at least one cup of fibrous vegetable each day. Sounds like we are back in grade school learning that pyramid, minus the bread.
Here is a list to include right now along with your protein:
- Lettuce, Cabbage, Chives, Greens, Kale, Spinach, Chard
- Asparagus, Bell Peppers,Broccoli, Cauliflower, Mushrooms, Zucchini, Avacado
- Cucumbers, Brussel Sprouts, Celery, Sprouts, Tomato, Radishes, Squash
Sounds like a wonderful salad! Be sure to drink lots of water 6-8 glasses each day and consider a Vitamin B complex supplement. I will tell you why in the REPORT…get on the mailing list today.
